I have a confession. I didn’t care about skin care treatment until recent days. The problem is: I’ve been a makeup artist for over 5 years and never once thought about skin care treatment. Like other young adults, I thought the one or two pimples that appeared from time-to-time was a sign of stress, or at the least, a warning that my annoying menstrual cycle was on its way. These pimples and oil bumps would just show up at the most inopportune times – at parties, birthday dinners, and weddings. I mean I never was insecure about my pimples, however, they made people question my ability to apply makeup. And that’s a problem! So I literally had to look acne in the face and get serious about skin care treatment.
With a credit card in hand, I went to my local pharmacy to grab a few facial cleansers that claimed to help with acne. I committed to trying each one out for at least a week or when an acne breakout occurred. I guess, you can conclude that this skin care treatment test wasn’t necessarily scientific, but at the end of about 3 months, I was a strong believer in Clean and Clear Continuous Control Cleanser.
Skin Care Treatment Basics
First of all, Clean and Clear daily facial cleanser is designed for individuals who suffer from mild to moderate acne. At least, that’s what’s written on its packaging. It contains 10% Benzoyl Peroxide, which is the main ingredient that clears the bacteria that causes pimples. The cleanser, itself, is a thick, white substance that squeezes very easily out of a 4-ounce tube. It does not sound like a lot but if you’re anything like me, you would grab a pair of scissors and cut open the tube when it’s about 90% done and scrape as much of the cleanser out with your bare fingers. No judgement, please. That’s called getting the most out of your skin care treatment investment.
Skin Care Treatment and Daily Routine
Depending how hectic my schedule was, I used Clean and Clear facial cleanser two to three times a day. Every morning I jumped in a hot shower and steamed my face for a little bit. Then I squeezed two pumps of the facial cleanser into my palm and applied it all over my face and neck. Afterwards, I let it sit on my face for about a minute or two, or until I felt an overwhelming tingling sensation. Oh my goodness! This was the best feeling in the world (okay maybe a slight exaggeration) but it felt like my pores were completely opened and ready for this skin care treatment to penetrate and remove all the nasty bacteria and oil.
I also used it as a spot skin care treatment to address one or two pimples that may have developed way too quickly into a whitehead. When that happened, I simply squeezed a small amount of Clean and Clear facial cleanser on a Q-tip and applied it directly to the pimple. This was definitely an overnight procedure – not a daytime application. In my humble opinion, there’s nothing cute about going out looking like a macadamia nut cookie.
Clean and Clear Skin Care Treatment Results
By morning, my skin care treatment would either make my pimple disappear or reduce it to a smaller size. I would be lying if I said I no longer suffered from mild acne but Clean and Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser definitely keeps the pimples at bay without any scarring – and that makes me happy! This facial cleanser has become one of the most important part of my daily skin care regimen because it cleans my face and smooth out my pores before I apply my makeup.
Trust me. Never again would a bride or a self-claimed diva be sitting in my chair while my mild acne is out of control!
